Recently, the trans in my '77 FX has started sticking in third. It's the stock kicker ratchet top. It sometimes sticks in 3rd on the 3-2 downshift. The lever moves a bit and feels like it hits a hard stop, and the trans doesn't shift, I have to click it up to fourth, then back down to un-stick it. It doesn't do it every time, and seems to do it more if I'm riding in 3rd a lot(like riding through town). The trans was rebuilt around 9,000 miles ago. I switch from standard gear lube to synthetic to see if it would work smoother, didn't make any difference. Anyone ever have a trans stick like this? Can it be fixed without having to take the whole trans out and apart? Thanks for the help.
